Daughter has asthma, do I need to get rid of pets?

Daughter has asthma, do I need to get rid of pets?

If she's allergic: Children with asthma who are allergic to pets should have minimal exposure to them (preferably the pet will not live in the house with the child). However, there is no reason that a child with asthma should avoid a cat or dog if they are not allergic to cats or dogs. Skin tests or a simple lab test can help diagnose cat or dog allergy. ...Read more

Can you get rid of asthma completely?

Can you get rid of asthma completely?

Probably not: Because asthma has a genetic component to it, in most cases you can't get "rid" of or "outgrow" asthma, you can only control it. Remember, asthma is inflammation, and studies suggest that even when patients feel fine and have no asthma symptoms there is likely some underlying inflammation present in the airways at all times. Conditions that mimic asthma (like bronchitis) can resolve completely. ...Read more

Follow treatment: Asthma can last a long time, and smoking or being around smoke will almost always make it worse. Some people are sick a lot of the time with it, others only a little. There's no total cure, but medicine can control the problems you have. Talk to your doctor about your breathing. They can decide how big a problem the asthma is and the best treatment for it. ...Read more

Sort of.: Most of the time, asthma can now be so well controlled that you will be without symptoms most of the time, and able to participate fully in all sports activities and other activities. Conditions that trigger or contribute to asthma should be addressed, appropriate medications and other forms of treatment put in place. Schedule an appointment with a board certified allergist or pulmonologist asap. ...Read more

I have an inhaler and i don't want to take medication. I'm 17 and i was wondering if there is another natural way to get rid of asthma?

Not much: Transcendental meditation has been reported to help asthma. Obviously avoiding the allergy triggers may help as well. Staying in a room with air conditioning or hepa filter may also help to reduce the allergen exposure. In my experience, none of these measures are sufficient for most people. If you dislike drugs, consider getting allergy shots made from natural products. ...Read more

Get checked out: The first step is to see an allergist to get tested; there is no reason to get rid of the cat if you're not allergic to it. Whether it is the cat or not, your allergist will be able to make recommendations to reduce your symptoms, and will then be able to discuss how to deal with this over the long term to prevent your symptoms from coming back. ...Read more
